    The shoots are coming in thick and fast right now at RNT.

    Members from all over the world are reaching their first checkpoint in the journey:

    The best shape of their life, physically and mentally.

    Yesterday our Head Coach Ed shared a powerful quote from popular author Mark Manson:

    “Identity lags reality by 1-2 years. There’s a lot of psychological fallout from a rapid change in status.”

    This is exactly why the first line of my book is:

    “Getting in shape is easy, staying in shape is a different ballgame.”

    The truth is, losing weight to gain it back for whatever reason is a waste of time and energy.

    That’s why we have members who stay with us for years, because to build a permanent lifestyle solution, you have to rewire your identity.

    This is hard, because our brain loves to default to old habits and behaviours associated with ingrained identities we’ve yet to detach from.

    It’s not simply a case of losing weight.

    If it was, we wouldn’t see so many experience a death by a thousand cuts when they don’t pay attention to life after their checkpoint.

    I’m going to be sharing more of this in an upcoming masterclass.

    I recently did a poll on Instagram asking if there was interest in a masterclass on how to lose 10-30lbs in the next 90 days (and keep it off).

    The response was overwhelming, so I’m now planning some dates!

    In the meantime, let’s dive into this week’s Transformation Thursday…


    3 Ways To Look, Feel & Perform Your Best

    1. Simple calorie calculations

    Your starting calories for a diet will always be an educated guess.

    There’s no hard and fast rule, but one I do like is starting with approx 10-12 calories per pound bodyweight.

    If you’ve got more than 25lbs to lose, go with 10cal/lb to start with. If less than 25lbs, start with 12cal/lb.

    Wherever you start, this will always be a starting point to build from. Losing too fast? Add some. Not losing fast enough? Drop some.

    2. Weight loss gold standards

    Building on point 1, the goal standard to aim for is 1% weight loss per week.

    If you’re not on the money, the first thing to check is your adherence.

    The easy way out is to blame the diet. The hard thing to accept is your inability to stay consistent.

    A lack of accountability, structure and guidance can play a big part in this.

    But also just how easy it is to kid yourself about how strict you’re being.

    3. Supplements don’t need to be fancy

    My supplement stack is super simple:
    • Vitamin D
    • Multivitamin
    • Protein powder (for convenience only)
    • Creatine monohydrate
    • Omega 3s (from Algae Oil) 
    I’m super consistent with the top 2, use powders for easy protein, and maybe 50:50 with the last two.

    Food is always king. Supplements are always the icing on the cake, but draw the most attention.

    I love this… “it’s so much more than just a fitness programme to lose weight”

    Want To Go Deeper In Your Journey?

    Despite working with a personal trainer in the gym for years…Chandni never saw results.

    Her trainer was great at helping her work out. But her real problem lay with her nutrition, and she wasn’t educated on how to eat for weight loss. Especially with a vegetarian diet and a busy lifestyle.

    So just before her 40th birthday, Chandni decided that enough was enough. 

    She wanted to feel good in her body again. She wanted to protect herself from nasty health conditions. 

    And she wanted to build a new identity away from being called “chubby”. So she hopped onto the RNT Method and hasn’t looked back…

    Today Chandni has lost an amazing 49 lbs! She chose to stop making excuses and created a lifestyle that would give her real results. 

    But the best part? She didn’t have to give up travel or her social life to achieve it.

    In the latest episode of RNT Fitness Radio, I dive deep into Chandni’s story:

    Here’s Chandni now by the way…

    Thanks for reading.
